New York Congressman Jokes About Conor’s Plea Deal, ‘Maybe they just don’t want him beating all the prisoners up’

Former two-division UFC champion Conor McGregor recently had his court date for a fracas that took place in Brooklyn, New York back on April 5. With that in mind, a New York congressman has now come forward with his thoughts on the situation.

“Notorious” successfully landed a plea deal on July 26 after pleading guilty to one charge of disorderly conduct. McGregor will see no jail time and will not have anything added to a criminal record.

Rather, McGregor will have to complete five days of community service, a 1-3 day anger management evaluation and will pay restitution on the UFC bus that was damaged in the fracas. Speaking to TMZ Sports, New York congressman Peter King has come forward with a few words on the recent court hearing.

“Maybe they are just trying to get rid of him.” King said. “They don’t want him hanging out in the jails and beating all the prisoners up. He’s a tough Irish guy. You got to look out for those guys.”
